The kit said to keep it in the secondary for 2-3 weeks...
A good rule of thumb is that if it tastes like good, albeit flat beer then it will always improve conditioned and carbonated!
IMO if the beer tastes good and is done fermenting and has cleared then package it and allow it to condition and carbonate. After a couple a few weeks give one a taste.
